7 Boutique Hotels in Egypt To Stay At For A More Personalized, Unique Trip
Visiting Egypt and looking for more memorable accommodation instead of just your everyday generic hotel chain? Well you’re in luck, because throughout the various cities and travel destinations in Egypt, there are a handful of beautiful boutique hotels that are all about providing thoughtful, unique experiences, whether through their architecture and interior design, their service or just their overall mission and ethos.
That being said, here are some of the best boutique hotels in Egypt in our humble opinion:
Lazib Inn Resort & Spa
Lazib Inn is an eight-suite boutique hotel on a green hilltop overlooking Fayoum’s Lake Qarun, built in the Fayoumi architectural style. Because the rooms are so limited, the hotel has an intimate and home-like feel to it.
They have a full-service spa as well as an outdoor pool and jacuzzi. Tunis Village, the main sightseeing area of Fayoum, is right outside of the hotel and they can also arrange trips into the desert to see Wadi el Hitan, Wadi el Rayan and other great sites in the Fayoum area.

Al Tarfa Desert Sanctuary
Location: Dakhla Oasis
This boutique hotel on the edge of Gilf el Kebir and the Great Sand Sea in Egypt’s Western Desert is so remote that the only way of reaching it is by small plane, arranged by the Al Tarfa team.
The sanctuary itself has only 20 rooms and suites, so privacy is guaranteed on this spacious private reserve, amongst date and acacia tree orchards. You can relax in the garden or at the pool, surrounded by Dakhla Oasis’ rare mix of greenery, desert and mountains.
Whether you’re there to just relax or to explore this mysterious and isolated place, the Al Tarfa team will set it up for you from A to Z.
